With Marcus Stroud out for Sunday’s game against the Jets, veteran Spencer Johnson will get the start, but rookie third-round pick Alex Carrington stands a very good chance of making his NFL regular season debut.
Carrington has been inactive the first three weeks of the season, in part because with the spread passing attacks they’ve faced (Green Bay, New England) they’ve needed more linebackers and defensive backs up on Sundays.
With a Jets team that runs more two back sets and Stroud down, Carrington is expected to be part of the D-line rotation.
“He’ll get some reps in the ball game this week,” head coach Chan Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “We’ll try to rotate some guys as much as we possibly can so he’ll get some reps I believe. Unless something unusual happens he’ll get some plays on Sunday.”
